Version 2.2.0

The new Activity Stream for VB 4.2.0 is very nice but it feels like it is missing something- and what it is missing is a sidebar. Ideally at some point VB will release a custom sidebar built just for the Activity Stream but until then this quick mod will let you use the built in forum sidebar on the Activity Stream.

As of version 2.0 besides just working on the Activity Stream the mod can now add a sidebar to ANY vBulletin page including forums, threads, groups, albums, who's online, forum leaders, and more. In fact you can easily add the sidebar even to custom pages from custom mods.

New Features
  • Now works on ANY vBulletin Page (except blogs which have their own sidebar)
  • Option to align sidebar with page content or top of page
  • Option to Disable Sidebar Collapse Option (By Usergroup in 2.1.0)
  • Collapsed sidebar state now "remembered" on different pages
  • Option to enable Sidebar by Usergroup
  • Option to disable Sidebar by Forum (if enabled for forums/threads)
  • Option to disable Sidebar in specific styles
  • Options to disable sidebars if mobile devices detected*

NOTE: To enable mobile device detection options you must install the Mobile Browser Detector mod.

Live Demo: Qapla.com Activity Stream

You can enable or disable the Sidebar Anywhere independently of the forum sidebar but they will both display the same content (blocks.)

NEW - If you need to have different blocks on different pages check out this add-on.

You must have at least 1 block setup and active for the sidebar to show.

Unlike most of my other mods this mod is enabled by default upon installation. Be default it is setup to show only on the Activity Stream and register.php pages.

I am aware there is already a mod out there "Everywhere Sidebar" by another coder. This is completely different code and I made this because my "Staff Online Sideblock" mod did not work on Sidebar Everywhere but it does work on this mod.

This mod requires at least VB 4.2.0 to work on the Activity Stream but should work on older VB 4.x.x versions on other pages.

The old version Zip file Sidebar for Activity Stream by BOP5 v11.zip works only on the Activity Stream.

nvm, it only happens on chrome on my desktop..

anyway..
I added a custom code on FORUMHOME, above {vb:raw sidebar}..
But when I go to other pages it is not included on the sidebar..
How can I include my custom code show on other pages too?
My custom codes only include html, vb:raw codes, and vb phrases codes..

Thanks!

This might be a silly, simple question but have you set it up to show on those pages?

Are you sure you downloaded the right version?

You need to download the second Zip fie: Sidebar Anywhere by BOP5v210.zip

The top one works only on the Acitivty Stream.

As always great MOD.
Works very well but I have a small issue.

The sidebar shows properly on most pages with sidebar activated however I found a small problem with the Calendar page.
The sidebar shows up properly when viewing the calendar in general or the detailed event view.
Only when editing the calendar event the sidebar gets moved all the way to the bottom of the page and the forum footer moves to the right top of the page as shown in the screenshot.

Any suggestions to fix this?

Thanks
Michael

Thanks for the great Mod,

is there a possibility of displaying a block based on forum-ID, as you´ve done it with THIS_SCRIPT. For example:

block_html_2|forum-id1
block_html_3|forum-id2
..etc

Thanks in Advance

the sidebar displays pretty much anywhere fine except when reading posts. in some cases it just shows way at the bottom of the page, in other instances it overlaps with the rest of the page.

Can you try it temporarily on the default style and see if you still have the issue?

Can we display sidebar *only* on threads?
Does this sidebar loads only recent activity? or any html/php contents?

You can enable the sidebar only on the SHOWTHREAD template if you wish.

It should load any sdebar block the regular sidebar loads.

Hi, sorry if this has been answered, does the activity stream block show the exact same info as the forum block or can you choose different blocks? I noticed on Qapla that both pages show the same sideblocks. Thanks
